Just got my 1984 Hutch Pro Star out of my parents' storage area

Back in 1984, my parents gave me a Hutch Pro Star for Christmas. Used it a bit, never raced it, and it was put away for the past 20+ years. Just found out that it's collectible, so when I was home last weekend, I got it out. Still in pretty good shape, needs cleaned...but 100% original down to the original tires. My own barn find. Let me know what you think. So much fun to ride again...I appreciate it way more now than I did then!

that is sweet that you still have it. you have some serious bank sitting there.

Re: Just got my 1984 Hutch Pro Star out of my parents' storage area

OK, now why didn't my parents ever put things away for me...first my mom sold all my star wars figures (100+) for $5 and now I see this gem.  I am just floored.  Dibs on the cranks

Re: Just got my 1984 Hutch Pro Star out of my parents' storage area

I love these posts...I had no idea. 12 years old when I got it. You can see the grip has a tear in it...yeah...from flying a kite off the handle bars...seriously. Not even my dad who bought it for me really knew what he was getting. This weekend he told me the store gave him 20% off list, so $800 - $160 = $640 back in the day. Same year I got my first snowboard, a wooden Burton Backhill that I still have. 1984 was a good year for me!

Not interested in selling, but thanks for the offers. Time to enjoy it again.

Re: Just got my 1984 Hutch Pro Star out of my parents' storage area

Just thinking that I need to dig up the pics of me getting it Christmas morning...that will make me feel old.

Everyone talks about the cranks on the Pro Star...what makes them so special? Personally, I always loved the pedals!

The cranks broke easily, so they are ..... not rare, but pretty uncommon to see.
